DAILY WORDS OF HOPE
BY PCG, HOPE CONGREGATION–SAK. EST
TODAY’S VERSE: (Read Exodus 3:1-20)
Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”14 God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.[a] This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”15 God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The LORD,[b] the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’“ This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.
THEME: THE NAME OF THE LORD
WORDS OF HOPE:
God revealed Himself to Moses and spelt out exactly what Moses was supposed to do to bring the Israelites out of slavery. Moses knowing who Pharaoh was requested the name of God so He will be sure that a higher authority is the one sending. God was promising Moses that He was adequate, or sufficient, for each and every need. By the word “adequate,” we do not mean barely sufficient but completely sufficient. God meant He was utterly sufficient in quality and quantity to meet any challenge that would arise while bringing Israel out of Egypt. Thank God this is still true today. God is still adequate to meet any need we might have in our lives. This thought is echoed in many New Testament verses that speak of God’s ability. The author of Hebrews wrote, “Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them” (Heb. 7:25). The Apostle Paul also said something similar: “for I know whom I have believed and I am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day” (2 Tim. 1:12). God always use vessels to glorify Himself. Moses was thus the vessel used to deliver the children of God.
• Pray for the grace to know that God is sufficient for us.
• Pray to be used as a vessel to honour the Lord.
• Pray for grace to trust in God and not to question His acts in our lives.
Lord, I believe that you are completely sufficient for me in the name of Jesus. Amen 🙏🏽
